in Criterion Month, Podcast

Didn’t get enough of Colin, Sean, and John talking about snooty arthouse movies in the dead of blockbuster season last year? Well, have we got a treat for you! Once, again these three lads will embark on another July filled with nothing but reviews of movies that have been put out by the fine folks at Criterion. And because the NFL draft just ended (or maybe it’s still going, I don’t know…) it’s time for the drafting of which films will be watched over the course of said month. And because it’s just the way we roll, we took an entire podcast to figure out who gets to review what movies. See you (and by you, I mean literally that one snob out there who’ll actually be interested in these reviews) in July!
